Wellsprings
 

"The ultimate origin and absolute teachings of Dzogchen inscribed in this most sacred text and whispered by the greatest adepts of its lineage are finally available in this volume. Every serious student of Dzogchen must study and enshrine it in their heart."
--Tulku Thondup, author of The Practice of Dzogchen


Wellsprings of the Great Perfection presents the primary sources explaining how the Dzogchen teachings came into this world, who received them and through whom they passed. It is an impressive collection of original translations from a vast number of classical Tibetan documents, including songs of realization by the early masters of the lineage.

Wellsprings fills an important gap in the body of translated Tibetan works now available as much of this anthology has never before appeared in English. This comprehensive assortment describes the lives of the early Dzogchen masters, what they taught and to whom they transmitted the Dzogchen lineages. Emphasis is paid to events that took place before the teachings spread to Tibet. Intimate in tone, it often feels as if one is a witness to intimate conversations between buddhas and bodhisattvas, celestial beings and the first Indian masters. When gathering these texts, translator, Erik Pema Kunsang consulted many of the major masters of this living tradition to verify the most essential material.

The contents of this book are greatly enhanced by specially commissioned line drawings by Ngawang Zangpo, as well as rare samples of the mystical symbolic script of the dakinis. In short, Wellsprings is not only a fascinating and useful historical record but a source of inspirational sacred knowledge deserving a special place on your bookshelf.
